"Extended Care: a Patchwork of Possibilities" Video

Written and storyboarded by me, then handed off to the animator.

One of the toughest nuts to crack when creating a short video that strives to educate consumers about a complex topic (like health care in retirement!) is coming up with a hook. I’m exceptionally proud of this one. Watch it here, and scroll down for some insights into the creative process.

 I’m always looking for ways to make tough topics more approachable.
